This paper gives an overview of the BIOMASS DEM Product Prototype Processor (BIODEMPP) being developed in the frame of ESA’s Earth Explorer BIOMASS mission. The BIODEMPP will be the first ESA prototype including a complete interferometric SAR chain, from the co-registration of the stack until the mosaicking of the BIOMASS Digital Terrain Models (DTM)s. This paper describes the goals of the BIODEMPP and discusses the main challenges which need to be addressed in order to achieve them. Moreover, it presents an overview of the BIODEMPP architectural design.
